GSS – Cinema Pro+ Gyro Stabilized Platform

System Features

With more camera and lens payload configurations than any gimbal in its class, the Cinema Pro+ (formerly the C520) is the big daddy of gimbals!. The Cinema Pro+ is optimized for larger cinema payloads and integrates more camera and lens payload configurations than any gimbal in its class. With six-axis of movement, this gimbal can handle full-sized cinema cameras with impressive lenses! As with all GSS gimbals, the Cinema Pro+ is well-suited for a variety of applications including aerial, ground vehicle, marine mounted and more.

GSS Systems are the smallest and lightest system in the world to integrate all of the most popular Digital cinema and Broadcast cameras. Cameras and lenses can be swapped out in less than 30 minutes, quicker than any other gyro-stabilized system on the market. GSS systems do not have ITAR restrictions, and Vector Steering allows for look-down capability with no gimbal lock. No auxiliary junction unit is required and with in-flight calibration, GSS systems have an unbeatable horizon reference.
